"Chancre" to De "Ladylike. "
The governors of the New Yorlc
stock exchange have issued an order
that hereafter there shall be no run
ning on the lloor. The new rule does
not please tlie brokers , who fear that
the dearest tradition of the exchange ,
noise and hurly-burly , is threatened.
It is protested that further reforms
in tuis direction will make the exchange -
change such a "ladylike" * affair that

BABY TORTURED BY ITCHING.

"My baby was about nine months old
when she had rash on her face aad
feet Her feet seemed to irritate her
most , especially nights. They would
cause her to be broken in ber rest , and
sometimes she would cry until she was
.tired . out. I had always used Cuticura
iSoap myself , and had heard of so many
'cures by the Cuticura Remedies that I
thought I would give them a trial. The
'improvement ' was noticeable in a few
\ \ hours , and before I had used one box
of the Cuticura Ointment ber feet
were well and have never troubled her
since. I also used it to remove what
| ls'"known as "cradle cap" from her
head , and it worked like a charm , as
! t cleansed and healed the scalp at the
! same time. Now I keep Cuticura Oiiit-
jment on hand in case of any little rasher
or insect bites , as it takes out the in-
fflammation at once. Perhaps this may
jibe the means of helping other suffering

When the body becomes run down

; or "bloodless. " The common symp-
'ionis are paleness of the lips , gums

IIEI E appears to be a tendency these days'
to put off the Question of marriage until/pne
has reached the age which might weir be
called the "age of indiscretion."Decrepit
bachelors totter to the altar to exchange the
vows of matrimony with acrid spinsters
where once two youthful lovers stood.
It has been said , with reason , perhaps , that the ten
dency to postpone marriage has grown'up with the in
creased cost of living and the desire of the man to attain
financial independence before requesting a woman to
share his lot with him. But there is another reason. In
these days no man is so old at any given age as bis father
was before him. To-day the young man of 25 is looking
backward rather than forward. He is more engaged in
regretting the good times of his college ftdays than in
mapping out his future. Nothing tends more to the wak
ing of the responsibility in a young man than marriage.
It is the natural order of things that every'man should
take under his protection and care one woman. For her
he works , for ber be plans and for her he lives.
Jour well-groomed , well-fed , well-bred bachelor of 50
may impress you as one who is leading a useful life. lie
may be a cog in that great machine known as the world
of commerce. He may be an eminent member of the
bar or a leading member of the medical profession. But
he has disregarded the greatest law of nature.
Marrying late in life is a decided mistake. It is shown
by the records of the divorce courts. One marries in
youth because one feels the need of a kindred spirit on
this little journey to the grave. One marries hi old age
through whim or wheedling. It is given to man to love
and live but once. If we miss this , why live at all ?

A NEW FARMER'S UNION.
IORMER attempts to unionize the fanners of
the United States haye generally ended in
politics and disaster. The Grange and the
Farmers' Alliance , while they lasted , had
some power , but they passed away as soon
as politicians began to control them.
The "Farmers' Union , " recently born in
Texas , and now numbering nearly 1,000,000 members , is
organized on different lines. Instead of trying fo force
down the prices of goods they buy , its members aim to
get better prices for what they sell. They aim , by cut
ting out middlemen in both buying and selling , to get
the best possible prices for farm products.
The new "Farmers' Union" is allied with the labor
organizations of the various States and with the Ameri
can Federation of Labor. The union is strongest as yet
in the South and West , but if present gains continue
for a year there will be 4,000,000'organized farmers in
America , or nearly 50 per cent of the entire farming
This is perhaps the first time that farmers have en
tered the ranks of union labor for the avowed purpose
of forcing up prices. The theory of the new union is
that if workingmen , in all'branches of industry , receive
high wages they can pay higher prices for farm prod
ucts and will consume mqre of them. Th ? farmer and
artisan thus pool their interests.
The main purpose of the Fanners' Union is to make
prices for farm products. The farmers have learned ,
by repeated experiments , that they can beat grain and

America was not far from the
k. " So says II. D. Jones in an
cle in the Technical World Maga-
. "America leads the world in the
ficial tooth industry and Philadel-
supplies a large percentage of the
1 ! output. False teeth are shipped
n this country to the rcmcte cor-
of the earth. They are to be
id in the mouths of Japanese , Chl-
. Hindoos , and even , it is very like-
i . cotton speculators at their own game. When prices are
low , they can , through organization , hold back their
crops until normal prices again prevail. Even with par
tial organization -they have done this repeatedly in the
South. Another aim is to establish a system of exchange
by which surplus crops of one scvction may be shifted to
other sections where there is a shortage , without giving
all the profits to middlemen. The principle is to corner
the market on the farm , and not in boards of trade.
Chicago Journal ,
A CONSTITUTIONAL WEAKNESS.
I HE Constitution of the United States may be ,
Gladstone said , the most perfect instrument
of government ever devised by man ; yet the
most ardent patriot , if lie is both intelligent
and sincere , will admit that it lias its lit
One flaw , well known to students of po
litical history , has come into new prominence through
the action of the San Francisco school board in assign
ing Japanese children to separate schools ; namely , the
possible inability of the national government to deal with
the matter. Unless it can be shown that this action is
in violation of some treaty agreement with Japan the
government will be helpless. The treaty of 1S94. appar
ently secures to Japanese in this country the commercial
rights and privileges of the most favored nation.
The inability of the government at Washington to re
dress international wrongs , when the wrongdoer is a
State of > the Union , has been the cause of serious diplo
matic embarrassment in the past , and will undoubtedly
cause dilliculty many times in the future. The case of
the Italians who were lynched in New Orleans is still
fresh in memory.
Foreign governments demanding redress of grievances
are not satisfied with a statement that the national gov
ernment is powerless , that the police power is vested in
the States , for they do not deal with States but with the
nation. The ability of a State to do with impunity things
which may direct the enmity of a foreign nation against
the whole United States is a source of weakness , not of
strength. Youth's Companion.
UTILITY OF POLAR BESEABCH.
T will have to be admitted that even in the
world of science and of statesmanship opin
ions differ as to the utility of modern ex
ploring expeditious into the extreme north
and south , although the weight of opinion
among scientists would perhaps lean to the
view of the Pearys and the Amundsens and
the Abruzzis. Among these , no doubt , the love of adven
ture and the ambition to be the winner of "the last
great geographical prize which the world has to offer"
are potent motives , but so it must be remembered was it
the case with the explorers of three and four centuries
ago. In the latter case commercial grain also entered
as a moving force , but for all that their achievements
were one of the chief inspirations of the New Learning
and aroused the spirit of enterprise and daring that
founded empires and discovered new worlds. So far as
tiie past is concerned it will not be disputed that the
deeds of the voyagers into tlie unknown were worth all
they cost. They helped to teach men habits of close
observation and to realize that all- facts concerning the
earth were related. Philadelphia Ledger.
